SRLA provides 3,000 teens across LA a 26-week mentoring and physical fitness program. SRLA teaches them to set and achieve goals by preparing them to complete the ASICS LA Marathon. While running is the core activity of the program, SRLA students learn that discipline, persistence, and hard work lead to success…both at the marathon and in life.
Join us to support these tremendous young people as they embark upon the journey of a lifetime…to the starting line (and finish line) of the ASICS LA Marathon!
HOW IT WORKS:
To join us as an official Team SRLA member, we ask that you complete the Team SRLA Participation Form and Waiver, make a commitment to raise $450 to support SRLA ,and join our team on imATHLETE by going to http://www.imathlete.com/donate/teamsrla and creating a fundraising page.
Once you have officially joined the team, you will receive the charity registration code (this guarantees you the $150 ASICS LA Marathon registration fee until January 15, 2014) and become eligible for the following fundraising benefits:
